Book Review: Good Night, Beautiful By Dorothy Koomson « Danderma’s Weblog

All of that being said, I did get “into” the story about half way through. It’s the summer ofthe year of love and hate, of Prague Spring and Cold War winter. Nada a viria a preparar para o acidente que Leo, o seu filho de 7 anos apenas, viria a ter, obrigando o rapaz a ser submetido a uma cirurgia e um consequente coma profundo.


To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I’m not sure how I feel about the ending. This is slightly important, but so different from the ways it would be important in the US. Fiction and storytelling were still a HUGE passion of mine and I continued to write short stories and novels every spare moment that I got.

Stephanie is jealous of Nova because she should be. Leo would be there, or there would be a mention of fashion or baking and you knew. Dit onthulde best veel!

Nova was brave, strong, scared and a lovely character. We have 2 friends who’s families have been close since they were little. From the author of the internationally bestselling novels My Best Friend’s Girl and Marshmallows for Breakfast comes an incredibly moving, powerfully written new novel about motherhood, love, loss, and new beginnings.

Toch ben ik blij dat ik hem nu eindelijk heb opgepakt, want wat was dit een mooi boek!

Sorry, your blog beautifjl share posts by email. I found the way that Koomson approached the whole issue was delicately done, and this really is a credit to her writing skill and indeed style.

I recently spent two years living in Doroothy Australia, and now I’m back in England. I have just finished the 5th novel by Dorothy Koomson, one of my favourite authors… this book? Stephanie kan geen kinderen krijgen, adopteren kost veel tijd, dus besloot het stel Nova te vragen.


Goodnight, Beautiful

Se pouso o livro, ando sempre a pensar nele. Only now they’re facing the most important decision of their lives – and they don’t agree. To ask other readers questions about Goodnight, Beautifulplease sign up. Did he choose to walk to his death? Eight years on Nova has fallen in love with her boy, Leo and has married.

The characters themselves were very interesting too, with the main 2 characters of Nova and Mal being very detailed in background, emotion and story.

They deserved to be miserable for doing what they did to Nova, and later Leo, when all she had been trying to do was make them happy in the first place. The book was doothy good read though, just be prepared to strongly dislike a character or two for the crappy half ass decisions they made for themselves!!!

Ze wil graag haar aller beste vriend gelukkig maken.

I often read passages and had no idea who was speaking, especially in the beginning when they started flashing back to the past.
